Nachos are never a thing anyone turns down on game day. Really having queso, chips, soda and maybe a few crackers and some M&M’s makes every game day a win, whether your team takes the victory or not.


Today I am sharing this delicious Easy Beef Queso recipe along with my personal thoughts on the ease of picking up all of your family game day essentials at your local Family Dollar. 

Growing up football season was big in my home. My parents had their friends over and always made a delicious spread. I have fond memories of my mom’s queso, Shelia’s Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars and Jean always bringing something new and tasty. Connie my mom’s friend was known for her no-bake cookies and I always hoped she would bring them, it always made my day. More often than not, she did.

I want to create these same kinds of memories for my kids starting with great food and people.

Of course since my mom’s queso recipe was my favorite, I wanted to share it with you. Easy and simple this is the perfect dip for chips, crackers, taquitos and well, honestly you could just eat it with a spoon.


Ingredient List for Beef Queso

  • Ground Beef
  • Taco Seasoning
  • Velveeta Cheese
  • Cheddar Cheese
  • Canned Diced Tomatoes with Green Chiles

How To Make Beef Queso

Excited not only for the reason the football season, but anyone who knows us actually knows that my husband and kids leave and breathe basketball, so that is when our Game Day snack season begins. So cheers to delicious food, stellar game day fun and friends to create memories with.
